I have this EXACT recipe, EXCEPT my recipe calls for adding Ro-tel to the corn & cream cheese, Try this not bland & oooo so GOOD!
This has been a favorite in my family for a few years but because of one very important addition. Adding crushed red pepper is what makes this a great side dish. Add a little or a lot, depending on what you can take.
I used two cans of corn, less butter, 4 oz of cream cheese, and heated everything in the microwave. This was a delicious, simple recipe to prepare. Next time, I'll try the red pepper as previously suggested. Thanks!
This was a big hit for Christmas dinner and one of the more popular leftovers. Since it was the holidays, (and we had already blown the diets soooo badly already) I added a few slices of cooked/crumbled bacon and just a touch of bacon grease. I also baked it in the oven to heat it after preparing it the day before - - -wonderful!
This is the perfect way to put a twist to a dish of corn. I have found this receipe to get lots of raves at pot lucks. Though, if you find this receipe too bland for your taste buds try adding a can of diced green chilies or a dash of red pepper to this already fantastic receipe.
My family has enjoyed this recipe, given to us years ago by a family member. Even the kids ask for seconds. Very simple recipe, except we cook it in a crock pot for about 4 hours using frozen corn.
This was a quick fix, but the cream cheese made this a heavy dish and made the whole thing taste like cream cheese; I was hoping the corn would just taste creamy. I probably won't make this again.
I knew ahead of time that this recipe would be too bland for my taste buds, so I added a little chopped garlic and a little more chopped jalapeno for an extra kick. It was even better reheated the next day after the jalapeno had had time to really sink in.
Corn is our favorite veggie and this is our favorite way to eat it! I often use 3 cans and we omit the butter. For my hubby and I, we love to add a can of diced green chilis. Delicious!!
With the amounts listed this makes a TON! I cut the recipe into 2/3 and it was more than enough for 8 adults. I had lots left over but lots of happy tummies! I had people asking for the recipe when they left.
I altered the recipe to serve one person (myself) as a late night snack. I used low-fat cream cheese, but found that it didn't melt very well. So I heated up the corn in the microwave for about 30 seconds, the cream cheese broke up quickly, and it took about half the time to make. I eventually added many of my own seasonings (salt, pepper, paprika) as I found it to be much to bland. Although, I found the cream cheese to corn ratio to be a bit too creamy, this was an okay dish after all. I would suggest tasting it as the dish cooks, and adding your own seasoning as needed. Also, if you are cooking small quantities, cook on low heat, otherwise it will overcook and/or burn.
Very, very good. I also added some garlic powder. It was a big hit.
We had this as a side one night with out grilled chicken and it totally rocked!! My kids who eat like birds totally devoured it. I will make again for sure
made this for a family thanksgiving side and everyone LOVED it.. and I mean LOOOVED it.
This was excellent. Normally I just use butter, salt and pepper. This was definitely a nice change. My daughter who I thought wouldnt not even try, went straight for it. Asked for seconds even. It is a lot of corn but it'll feed at least 6 people with some to spare. I will be making this again in the near future.
Easily bored with vegetable casserole recipes, I tried this in hopes of jazzing things up a bit. I added the red pepper flakes and a shake or two of prepared real bacon bits. It was a pleasant addition to the dinner table and far from ordinary.
We loved this recipie! I had a ton of leftover grilled corn from a BBQ and had no idea what to do with it. Luckily I found this recipie and I had everything I needed for it in my fridge! Such an easy go to for dinner parties also. I did add some diced tomatoes and used less butter. So good and creamy!
yum! I made half a recipe. I used frozen corn and a can of green chiles, threw it all in a pot on low until warm. I will make this again.
Yummy! I used a tub of cream cheese with chives (instead of plain). Very good - will definitely make again!
You are missing the most important ingredient - Velveeta! Add chopped up Velveeta and the can of Rotel as others have suggested. Use frozen corn, start it in the slow cooker early in the day and YUM!
I made this corn last week. Everyone liked it, the only thing was the corn didn't cook very well (we used frozen) and the texture wasn't the best. Besides that they liked it!
I made this as is at first, and it was good and easy, but a bit boring for me. So I added parsley and tomatoes based on some other reviews. After the additions, I thought it was a very good side dish!
This was okay, wish I had read the reviews first! It does need a jalapeño pepper and I didn't know to get one at the store.
My variation of this recipe calls for 1 can of chopped green chilies, garlic salt to taste, and I use 1/2 white corn and 1/2 yellow corn; it comes out colorful and pretty. I cook it in the crock pot - the longer it cooks the better it is. I have friends who won't let me through the door without this dish!!!
This recipe is great as is but I love it even more with a can of chopped green chilies added to it. It really adds a kick of southwestern flavor.
THIS IS MY THIRD TIME MAKING THIS RECIPE AND LET ME JUST SAY IT SEEMS TO BE BETTER AND BETTER EACH TIME...I ALWAYS ADD TONY CHACHERE'S CREOLE SEASONING IN EVERYTHING THAT I MAKE...TRY THAT FOR A LITTLE EXTRA SEASONING INSTEAD OF SALT AND PEPPER...BRAVO!
This is such a simple recipe but so delicious. I separated into 2 and added diced jalapeños to one. Cream cheese and jalapeños together are one of my favorites so this is definitely a side dish we make quite often now.
This has been a family favorite since I was a child. We call it "Nana's creamed corn." As an adult, everyone I've prepared it for has raved! It's always a hit in Texas!
I read a lot of reviewers who thought this was bland... but I liked this a lot as written, and my extremely picky children inhaled it! (I used salted butter so maybe that added some flavor) I always cook my veggies "al dente"...and just added the butter and cream cheese to melt. I didnt need to cook any further, and didnt want the corn to get mushy. Even though i liked as is, I think it would also be good with either some garlic salt, or some canned chilis or chopped jalepenos.
Amazing dish. Very rich and creamy.
I received alot of compliments and people asking for the recipe! I followed the recipe and added 1 small can of chiles, next time I think I may add 1 more. This is quick and great if you need something for a potluck
My daughter made this recipe for Thanksgiving and everyone raved about it. I have made it several times since and will make it tomorrow for Easter. We follow the directions but then keep it warm in the crockpot until serving time. .
WOW! What a fabulous and easy dish. Served it for Thanksgiving and everyone loved it. I couldn't get enough. Must taste to appreciate!!! Yummy!!
This tasted so great for such an easy recipe. My husband wasn't sure about the cream cheese, but he loved it!
I added bacon pieces, chopped onion, and chives. It added flavor. A friend of mine suggested adding sugar for extra sweetness. I will try that next time. Overall a five star dish.
This recipe was a good base, but I did need to spruce it up a bit. I added garlic powder, onion powder, black pepper and a dash of seasoning salt. Very good!
I don't know if I did something wrong, but nobody liked this. Maybe it's just too different for the family and friends to wrap their minds around. Sorry to the creator.
While this was a yummy dish, it was too bland for eating in hearty quantities. I will. Try it again with the tips of other reviewers - maybe garlic, salt, paprika, pepper, and a lower cream cheese-to-corn ratio.
So easy, just added some salt and white pepper. Just add some slow cooker ham and scalloped potatoes, an asparagus side dish.........
I have made a similar dish for years. Instead of fresh corn, frozen or 3 cans of shoepeg corn works just as well. I add 1/2 to 3/4 cup of green chili depending on heat/taste. Yummy and oh so popular at potlucks.
We used grilled corn, cut from the cob, and a fat free cream cheese and it was delicious!
Easy and very, very good. My husband has be take it to all pot lucks during the holidays, because then he can have some.
This is amazing if you add just a small amount of red pepper flakes! Or just regular pepper to season it a bit. But the red pepper flakes give it a flavorful kick (and I don't even like spicy food) seriously a must for me. Then it's 5 stars and even better the next day. :)
I checked out the reviews on this recipe before I made it so I was expecting something a bit more tastier than what I actually got. This corn was just a bit too bland for my taste buds.
Was way to much cream cheese I thought and it was very plain. Not the best
Kind of funky -- sweetish with a strong cream cheese flavor. I didn't alter at all. My kids (5 and 8y) really liked it -- might make it again for that reason. A nice change from plain corn.
It's not a bad side dish. I agree it does look plain and perhaps tastes less wow for others , therefore you will attempt to make it "colorful" or twig with the recipe a little bit. Good luck.
My family & friends rave about this dish. Most of the time, I omit the chiles for those who can't handle the heat. But it works well with or without them.
This was better than I thought it was going to be. Really good. The red pepper flakes are an inspired addition! Thanks to those that recommended it.
To say my family doesn't like vegetables is an understatement; they're NON-vegetable eaters! But they gobbled up this dish with a zest usually reserved for dessert. In the middle of my Thanksgiving dinner, I had to make a second batch! It's perfect, although not at all healthy or low in fat or carbs. That's probably what makes it so good.
This was wonderful and easy! After reading other reviews, I was afraid it might taste too bland. I opted to make the recipe as is and had mild, diced green chiles on the side to offer as needed. This was the perfect solution and everyone's taste buds were pleased. I was one of 3 who found them to be a fabulous addition and it did not matter at all that they weren't heated with the corn. Yummy combination! Two of my guests tried the chiles, but loved the corn as is without adding anything else. I will do this from now on. Each person can add to their personal taste and everyone was thrilled with the dish. I was afraid that my youngest daughter would be her usual picky self and complain that it was just like creamed corn which she does not care for. To my amazement, she gobbled it up (without the chiles) and asked for seconds! Thank you for this great recipe idea. I simply used canned corn and heated it through, drained it and finished with the recipe as written. The cans don't quite measure exactly 3 pounds, but it worked beautifully. This is not meant to be a gormet recipe. It is, however, a terrific spin on serving basic corn for your vegetable and just as easy! You should have the diced green chiles on the side to try them. I was glad that I did because I don't care for bland taste.
The cream cheese over powered it way to much! Definitely would not be trying this again
I thought this was bland tasting. I followed the recipe as written.
Easy to make, VERY tasty. Use sweet cream butter for better results. Can make less fattening by using magarine and low/no fat cream cheese which also turns out pretty good.
Perhaps I did something wrong (don't see how though since there's not much to this) but my corn was a runny mess, so I had to add bread crumbs to it to thicken it up a bit. The first few bites were pretty good, but each bite after that it got worse. I'll not be making this one again. (Sorry)
Delicious! Add salt and pepper to taste. Can also make in crock pot.
Very good. I used frozen corn.
One of my husband's favorite side dishes. He requests it frequently.
Excellent! Easy! Not too soupy. I did use frozen sweet white corn (1 standard bag, thawed), as fresh corn was not yet in season. Although, I really don't have the patience to cut kernels off a cob; especially when I'm having a crowd for dinner. I also cut back on the cream cheese (1/4 brick). I always keep in mind, on most recipes, ingredients can be added, but not taken out.
Wow,such a simple recipe, but with phenomenal results. This was a hit with everyone in my household. A real keeper!
We make this frequently & everyone loves it. My 4 year old calls it her "special corn" & always asks for seconds!
This was bland and unimpressive. But I would like to try it again with the green chilies. That might just do the trick for me!
If you add chopped jalapenos to this recipe, it is also very tasty!!!
Awesome easy side dish! We used fresh summer corn, which probably makes a big difference. Per the suggestion of other reviewers, we spiced it up a bit with some chopped jalapenos and a generous dose of Tajin (a mildly spicy Mexican spice mix.) So delicious, and it couldn't be easier to make.
YUM! This was SO easy and yummy! I sprinkled some garlic salt on it - think it gave it some more zest. But, YUM! :)
We loved this... simple, rich, and tasty. Added salt, pepper, and garlic powder. Went great with our fried chicken!
usually i make my corn with butter, black pepper, cayenne, garlic powder, and cumin... so i gave the cream cheese a try... i like it better without the cream cheese, personally. it didnt bring anything to the flavor, and seemed to drown out my added spices.. but still tasty.. i ate it all...
Every-one at thanksgiving said "who made the corn? it's really good!"
I started with this recipie and have changed it everytime I make it. I now use 3 cans corn and 3 cans mexi corn. I add diced jalapenos, brown sugar and sour cream. Not too spicy, but with a little kick!
Follow the directions.DO NOT use a crockpot, even on low. It's great if you do it the right way! Add a little sugar if you like it the southern way!
I used 3 ears of corn, 1/2 a tub of chive & onion cream cheese, and the butter...I thought my son and husband were going to eat my pot, they ate it so fast! Will be making this week as well, with the corn crop still in grocery stores.
All I had for a veg. was Kernal corn, saw this recipe and was as delicious as I imagined.....good job
This was soooo good! I used another reviewer's idea of adding a jar of salsa and then served it on rice. Could also serve it on pasta. I'll be making this a lot!
This is my favorite way to eat corn. Since no one else in my family likes it, I make smaller batches, but it reheats well too.
This was just ok. It was creamy alright but it was too bland tasting will all the cream cheese. We couldn't quite taste the flavor of the corn! Had to spice it up quite a bit. I probably won't make again but it was a nice try. Thanks.
I was looking for a way to jazz up corn for a potluck luncheon I had at work. I found this recipe and thought I'd give it a try, but with some moderations as others suggested. This is what I did. I used 2 Pounds of frozen corn, 1/2 can of chicken broth, 1 8 oz package cream cheese, 1/4 cup butter, 1 tsp salt, 1/2 tsp garlic powder, 1/4 tsp paprika. I let this cook in the crockpot for about 2 1/2 hours half on high, half time on low and would stir occasionally. Everyone loved it.
Excellent, my picky boyfriend scarfed it down! Added some garlic salt for kick.
It was yummy with the hot red pepper added!
This is even better with a sauteed onion and garlic. It's a shame that my family isn't big on it because it leaves a ton leftover. My a@@ can't stand any more attention. ;) Good stuff right here.
Very easy and quick. I used low-fat cream cheese and it turned out great.
To liven up the flavor of this, I melted the cream cheese with chopped jalapenoes and 1/8 of cup of jalapeno juice. I also added cracked black pepper and salt. I tossed that with the corn, threw it in the crockpot and it resulted in a pretty good side dish. I might experiment with some of the flavored cream cheeses next time...like sun-dried tomato or red pepper! Thanks, Earla!
I used only 1lb of corn instead of three and it came out great. (I'm not even a corn lover but this was good) Next time I might try sweet corn.
I have used this recipie for many many years but I add 2 cups of sharp cheddar cheese to mine and bake it instead of stove top. Its always a big hit!! Its even good as a dip for corn chips the next day if you have any leftovers!! Not a diet food for sure but so good!!
My family loves this and they normally do not eat corn.
My daughter and I liked it, but my husband and son did not. I used canned corn though and they thought that they might like it better if I used frozen. So, I might try it again. It was a little thick, which was ok, but there was not a lot of flavor. I had to salt it. I tried the leftovers today though and like it better.
this is wonderful and so easy. My 2 year old could not eat enough. I will definetly be making this for Thanksgiving.
Just like the recipe I was given years ago. Occasionally have to thin with a little milk. Very easy in the slow cooker. Just add all with the cooker set on low....stir occasionally. yum yum
The corn was really good, gave it a very different taste from regular corn.
I halved this recipe and used 2 cans of corn. I also took the suggestion of other reviewers and liberally added red pepper flakes. My husband LOVED this!
It tastes exactly like it sounds. Nothing great, but not bad either!
Pretty good. I added 2 chopped jalapenos (depends on how hot they are) and some 1/3 c of milk.
Jalapeño peppers are good in here too...
at a BBQ we had excellent feedback on this recipe with many people wanting the recipe
Love it! Added some cayenne pepper to spice it up and a little more cheese. To die for!!!
Loved it! added garlic powder, pepper, and paprika just for taste and left out the butter! so very good!
This was super easy, but needed a little more flavor. I added some garlic and onion powder and cayenne to give it a little more something. Overall, reallly good.
This was so easy and all of my family LOVED it!!
